Tulip Bakeri

 

 

Bulbs for Spring colour are something you should think about! What could be better than the surprise element of snowdrops, anemones, crocus,minature daffodils and dwarf tulips? It's all so exciting even just thinking about it! I so love bulbs popping up in places I had forgotten I ever planted, the element of surprise can be electrifying.

I know summer isn't over, especially with the great September forecast, so forgive me for talking about winter and spring, but good gardening is all about planning ahead. Bulbs only take a few minutes to plant, and in return you will get weeks of pleasure throughout spring. Remember to keep active in your garden - you will feel so much better in mind and body. Being out in the garden is a very spiritual thing and I feel it allows us to put life into perspective, reminding us what is important in this world. Anger and worries  seem to disappear in the garden - could it be the garden fairy who banishes all our problems?

Margaret's tip:

Soak your bulbs in a liquid feed of maxicrop tomato food before you plant - this will make a huge difference to their performance.
